on the constitution has become a referendum on egypt's islamic president, mohamed morsi. >> reporter: both sides of the egyptian political divide plan major marches and rallies this morning. government supporters are calling a yes vote on the referendum a vote for islam. the opposition is fragmented and far less organized and decided only a few days ago to vote no rather than boycott the ballot. the new constitution was drafted by the ruling islamist party and its hard-line political allies. the mainly secular opposition says the 63-page document does not represent all of egypt's 83 million people and tramples on the rights of minorities such as christians. a major problem is a lack of monitors. a significant number of judges have refused to supervisor the 13,000 polling stations so the voting will have to be held over two days first in major cities an then in the countryside. many egyptians are simply growing weary after two years of political turmoil. adding to their woes is the effect on the economy. the tourism industry has been hard-hit and the prospects of attracting f

mohammed resulted in the killing of bin laden? >> it did not, and that's what this study, that intensive study that the intelligence committee just completed thousands of pages and a yearlong study indicate clearly that they found out about the courier from an outside source that was outside the country. there is no information whatsoever that shows that. in fact, there's information that they misled the interrogators while this violation of the geneva conventions torturing people was going on. and they -- again, moral of the story is, if you inflict enough pain on someone, they will tell you anything they think that will make the pain stop. and that's what was happening in these interrogations, and it did not lead to eliminating osama bin laden, which a goal we all shared. and to tell the american people it did, i think, is really harmful. >> let me button it up with this, senator. with so many problems and issues on the plate of the senate right now, the attack on benghazi as we were just talking -- the consulate in benghazi, the fiscal cliff, what to do with syria just to name a few,
. >> elsewhere in the region, egypt right now, we're seeing these protesters, these anti-mohammed morsi protesters moving closer and closer towards the presidential pass palace in cairo. they're concerned about what morsi is doing as far as democracy in egypt. how worried are you about the situation in egypt? >> i think egypt is key to the region, so the answer is, you've got to be extremely worried when you see instability affecting egypt. this is, again, the birth pangs of proper democracy in some ways, but this struggle is immensely important. obviously what's important in these countries where they've moved to a democratic system is that there is a clear understanding that democracy is not just a way of voting but a way of thinking. pant of that way of thinking is that you've got to protect minorities. you've got to -- democracy doesn't function unless it is accompanied by an open mind. and so you can understand there is a lot of anxiety in egypt about the constitutional changes proposed. and even as the international community obviously applauded egypt's efforts in bringing about t
are true even if mohamed morsi believes them. and one of those things is that there are a lot of old regime people around that have been really working to bring him down from the inside. even paranoids have enemies. he's a deeply paranoid guy right now. but he also is facing a lot of internal enemies. the overwhelming sense i had, mika, from being in egypt is how little the people there know each other. they have a blue states/red states problem that makes ours look like a day at the beach. and that's really -- as the lid has come off and you have these less religious brotherhood people and middle and upper class people from cairo and alexandria, these people do not know each other at all. this country really needs to go on a long weekend retreat. >> yeah, i don't think that's going to happen. you know, we saw the same thing, interestingly enough, in 2009 in iran where you had a lot of people in the cities opposing ahmadinejad, and you had people in more rural areas being far more conservative and supporting ahmadinejad. but carl bernstein, one of morsi's biggest problems right now is we lo
president mohammed morsi's allegiances are as uncertain as his grip on power. under a foreign aid deal signed in 2010, when morsi's u.s. friendly predecessor hosni mubarak was in charge, the u.s. is giving the -- we're giving the plains to egypt -- the planes to egypt's air force. which already has more than 200 of the aircraft. the first four jets are to be delivered beginning january 22, a source at the naval air base in fort worth where the planes had been undergoing testing told foxnews.com. but the $213 million gift is raising questions on capitol hill. morsi is under fire for. the article gos on, buchanan, who recently called for ening foreign aid to egypt altogether said the muslim brother-backed morsi government has been sending increasingly troubled messages, or signals, to washington and giving it state of the art fighter jets is a dangerous idea. he's quoted as saying, american tax dollars must not be used to aid and abet any dictatorial regime that stands with terrorists. representative thornberry of texas, vice chairman of the armed services committee said eyipt is a wild
demonstration as a result of outrage about a video that attacked the prophet mohammed. none of that was true. it was labeled a terrorist attack from day one. but the administration wanted to paint a narrative that everything was fine in libya. so now we have yet another attempt to purposely misdirect the american public. why? because the spokeswoman for the state department said the secretary has accepted the resignation of eric boswell, a high level security official, she's accepted his resignation and then she said, and the other three individuals, who are mentioned in the benghazi report, have been relieved of their current duties. it gave everyone the impression that four individuals had resigned as a result of their mismanagement of this terrorist attack in benghazi, when in fact, we now find out that all of them are still on the payroll, one of them has resigned from his position as deputy secretary, but he's got a lot of other titles as well. so they just shifted the deck chairs and they want to make the american people believe that the state department has held people accountable for
